Charlie Wilson's War

200px-CharliewilsonwarposterTonight I watched Charlie Wilson's War (2007,R) (ScreenIt! Review).  From ScreenIt!:

A party-going congressman, a bitter and sardonic CIA case officer, and a wealthy Texas socialite set out to help Afghan rebels fight off invading Russian forces, all in the hope of stemming the spread of communism in 1980.

It was enjoyable enough and the subject of Afghanistan definitely had more resonance after reading Khaled Hosseini's books - but not too much else.  I give it 3 out of 5.
